Two Australian finalists in Year in Infrastructure 2020 awards

By on 6 October, 2020

Bentley Systems has announced that two Australian projects are among the finalists for its annual Year In Infrastructure awards.

As is tradition, the awards will form the keystone of Bentley’s Year In Infrastructure (YII) conference, to be held virtually this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Globally, 57 finalists were selected from a pool of over 400 entries, representing 330 organisations and 60 countries. The selections were made by 16 independent panels across a range of categories.

Chris Barron, Bentley’s chief communications officer, said: “The circumstances of the global pandemic have made the past few months a challenge for us all, and it is a testament to our users’ resilience that we received over 400 nominees for our Year in Infrastructure Awards program.

“While we are not able to present this year’s conference and awards ceremony in front of a live audience, the new virtual format gives us the opportunity to re-invent Year in Infrastructure and take full advantage of ‘going digital.’ Attendees can access our informative sessions in real time, or on-demand, making it easier for anyone to attend multiple sessions that might have ran concurrently.”

The Australian finalists are AUAV for their Warragamba Water Pipeline digital twin, and Shell QGC for the development of an engineering data warehouse.

The finalists will present their projects for judging during a pre-conference showcase beginning October 5 through October 16, 2020. The awards ceremony will take place on October 21.
